Start Style on Trial: Nicole Kidman in see-through Prada

Nicolekidman

We’ll be honest: our first instinct was to frog-march Nicole Kidman straight to the Fashion Police cells for this little Prada number, which she wore to the Tokyo premiere of The Golden Compass, but then we did a bit of reading and discovered that a lot of people seem to think this dress was a good choice for Nicole, and even although most of those comments were of the "It’s Prada, so it must be nice!" type, we’re reserving judgment and putting her On Trial anyway.

The Case for the Prosecution:

The Prosecution put it to you that this dress is a hellish mish-mash of net curtains and feathers that Nicole possibly cobbled together from old scraps that she found in her grandma’s attic. The Prosecution also begs leave to point out that the top of this dress? Is see-through. Making it look from a distance like she went out in her bra and feathers. Case closed.

The Case for the Defense:

The Defense says that if the Prosecution was a few months pregnant, it would be happy to look even half as good as Nicole.

Over to you, The Jury. Is Nicole Kidman guilty or innocent of Crimes Against Fashion ?

    Just because it is Prada and Nicole Kidman doesn’t make it right–the bottom looks like it is see through with a white slip–and whether she has the body for it or not that thing is very similar to some of the crazy fashions my kids have put together for their Barbies after cutting up pieces of material and taping them together.

    Prada is “known” for always being “fresh” every season..I guess they ran out of ideas and decided to mash left over fabric from other seasons

    I don’t care if it’s Prada or if she’s pregnant. Christina Aguilera was pregnant and she looked fantastic and chic in a real dress that was fabric instead of mesh.

    Guilty! Even the great designer could make mistakes… Seems that Prada is not an exception

    I seem to be in a minority but I like it. She looks great in it and it isn’t too see through (see Abi Clancy in later post for what ‘see through’ really means)
